Méav based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Meav's sound is like Enya's, and I am sure there will be comparisons, but Meav's sounds simpler and clearer to me. I love her version of classic Celtic favorites (She moved through the fair, Im a doun, I wish my love was a red red rose, I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls). I think my favorite is probably Solveig's Song. It is minor, mournful, and characteristic of Grieg's work. Meav sounds like a bird during the sighing, soaring chorus. She sings with exquisite control and care, yet with feeling and passion. It's interesting the way she also incorporates the use of a backup choral group. It's almost a chant. I had never heard such a fiesty, happy version of She Moved Through the Fair. The drums get going, the other voices join in, and it sounds like a great celebration, which I never thought it was until I heard her version. Also, she left out the sad part of that song, which I like. Can't wait until her next album!
I just happened on this artist. I'm a huge fan of Enya and Meave is right up there. She has the sweetest voice. I'm so excited to get her new CD and look forward to more.
